Welcome to Huddersfield Netball League Official Website!
Following the Government announcement on Saturday 31 October, we are deeply disappointed to confirm that community netball will be suspended until the national lockdown, coming into affect on Thursday 5 November, is lifted. All community netball following the Return to Play roadmap is impacted including club activity, leagues, local pathway activity and all England Netball programmes including Back to Netball and Walking Netball. Activity operating as part of the elite sport framework is however permitted to continue.
The efforts of the Netball Family since the Government signed off our Return to Play plan in August have been inspiring. England Netball are immensely proud of the huge amount of care and attention the Netball Family has taken to ensure that the virus isn’t spreading through netball activity. We sincerely thank the committees and COVID-19 Officers who interpreted the guidance and developed risk mitigation plans, the coaches who’ve carefully planned sessions, the officials who have implemented the modifications, and every single player who has stepped back onto court. The opportunity to play even for a few short months will have meant even more after these difficult times for so many.
As our members are no doubt aware, the government has recently agreed to accelerate the return of our sport through a modified version of the game.
This approval activates a roadmap for the return of community netball that allows modified training to take place for groups of up to 30 people per court, subject to netball organisations having the required risk mitigations in place.
This is an important milestone post lockdown and means netballers can now reunite on court and enjoy the many benefits of netball once again. To support you in getting back onto court click here to access a full Re-start Netball Activity guidance document.
We will endeavour to keep you up to date with what is going on in respect of re-starting the Huddersfield League, and please refer to all the guidance and support that is available from England Netball.
If anyone needs any assistance navigating through the risk assessment and mitigation processes, or has questions they would like help with, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
